Husker apparel stores that will help you gear up for game day
Husker nation is counting down the days to the Nebraska football spring game. For many students and ticket holders, April 21 cannot come soon enough. They want to get a glimpse of first-year head coach Scott Frost’s new systems. While fans prepare for the big day, some start to stress about the game day outfit.
To supply the state’s love for football and tailgating, Husker apparel stores near campus and online make it simple for fans and students to support the Big Red. Locally owned businesses selling Nebraska gear are scattered all around the area, and a majority of those stores also have websites to check out.
I have made a list of stores I believe are worth looking at to complete that game day look. From the classic Husker T-shirts to the fancier, boutique-style clothing, Husker apparel stores have a lot to offer customers for the spring game and fall football season.
